Query:   Hi everyone,

I'm a graduate student in linguistics, and I'm interested in participating in an outreach program where university students go to K-12 schools, preferably a high school, once or twice a month and help kids learn about linguistics, or linguistically relevant topics. The outreach coordinator at my university has asked me to find out whether other linguistics programs have established outreach programs, and if so what the students do (I think it might be challenging for her to find something for me to do -- although I've suggested many possibilities, linguistics per se is not a subject taught in K-12 education, at least not usually the U.S.A.).

If your department has such a program or if you know about any such programs, could you let me know about what the programs do, and what the role of graduate students is within the program? Or if you know someone I could contact to find out more about outreach programs, could you put me in touch with him or her? If you don't know of any programs, but have any other thoughts on the matter, please feel free to respond too!
